"Red, White and Blue Berry Cream Pie"

This pie is one I frequently make for bake sales at our church. I can hardly ever set it down on the sale table without someone picking it right up and saying, "Mark this one sold!" I grew up on a farm in Nebraska, and I began cooking when I was still quite small—making something that my four brothers liked always made me feel good when I was young.
